Description: • Building Schools for the Future (BSF) was conceived as a long-term programme of investment and change in England to help transform education for 3.3 million students aged 11-19. Although originally planned as a 15–20 year programme, it was announced by the Secretary of State for Education on 5 July 2010 that only projects that had achieved OBC approval by 1 January 2010 would continue. • The BSF programme was designed to enhance the learning opportunities of young people by providing new or substantially refurbished facilities capable of delivering a 21st century curriculum. • The programme also sought to: • provide teachers with 21st century work places; • provide a step-change in the level of information and communications technology (ICT) provision; • deliver the investment as efficiently as possible, through a standard procurement and delivery approach – the local education partnership (LEP). Since the decision was taken to allow only those projects beyond OBC by 1 January 2010 to continue, an exercise was undertaken in late 2010 to identify savings from the remaining programme. C.£250m was duly identified as efficiencies.
